I was just wondering if anyone had any advice about shaving down below. I used to shave, but ended up with ingrown hairs, painful bumps etc so stopped and just started trimming. Now, I'd really like to be totally clean shaven again but I'm worried that I'll have the same problems. Is there anything I can do to help avoid bumps, cuts and ingrown hairs? Also, what do you guys use to shave? I'm afraid to put normal shaving foam down there because I'm extremely prone to BV (although doing everything 'correctly' doesn't seem to prevent it, either).
I know I could wax but I'm not too keen on that, mostly as I'm a hygiene freak and you never know how clean the salon is, whether they double dip etc.
